Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your Kingdom come.  Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Please give us this day our daily bread and forgive us of our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us. Lead us not to temptation but deliver us from evil.  For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory.  For ever and ever, Amen

Father, thank-you for being our God and for welcoming us into Your Kingdom.  Thank-you for all that you do for us as individuals and for humankind.  Lord God, we give thanks that you are with us in our difficult times with us as well as our happy and successful times.

Thanks that you are in the midst of this corona virus with us.  We pray and ask for you to be present in all the decisions of all the leaders and other people of this world, as you lead us to figure out and apply the answers to dealing with this world-wide epidemic.  Please lead our doctors, nurses, scientists and the leaders of our world at all levels of authority and leadership – in all nations.

Lord it may be one of the many, many signs of end times.  Or it may not.  Only you know.

Help each of us to support one another at this time.

May you be pleased with each of us, overall.  Please correct our behaviours and decisions where they are wrong.

Lord, God, Jesus and Holy Spirit, we trust you.  We go forth in your name. May this be a time when You lead countless people to your Kingdom.

We ask all this in Jesus name,


— prayer offered by Dennis Seeley & shared online in lieu of our 2020 Breakfast.
